Rudy Giuliani had an ex-cop guarding the door in that Borat hotel scene, Sacha Baron Cohen tells Colbert

Borat showed up to taunt Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week, but Stephen Colbert got to interview Sacha Baron Cohen on Monday’s Late Show. And Cohen had some new details about Borat Subsequent Moviefilm‘s most infamous scene, where Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, puts himself in a compromising position with a young actress playing Borat’s daughter, Tutar.

Giuliani “has denied that he was actually doing anything untoward toward this girl, this 24-year-old woman playing your 15-year-old daughter,” Colbert said. “Do you have anything to say to Rudy Giuliani about going into a bedroom with a supposedly teenage girl to drink whisky and zip your pants up and down?” Cohen noted that Giuliani “said that he did nothing inappropriate, and you know, my feeling is if he sees that as appropriate, then heaven knows what he’s intended to do with other women in hotel rooms with a glass of whisky in his hand.”

Cohen explained that while the actress, Maria Bakalova, was in the hotel room with Giuliani, he was hiding in a custom-built box in the wardrobe, unable to see but supposed to be getting updates from his producer based on the cameras hidden in the room. “You don’t want Maria left alone with Giuliani,” Colbert suggested, and Cohen said Giuliani thought he was alone with her. “He brought a cop with him, an ex-policeman, and the policeman does a sweep of the entire hotel suite,” he explained, and then Rudy’s security guard left and “sits outside the room, ensuring that no one could come in and out — which is actually more scary when you think about it, for her.” Things got even dicier when he turned on the phone, Cohen said.

Cohen also recounted what really happened when he interviewed Trump as another of his alter-egos, Ali G, and showed unreleased footage of Borat narrowly escaping a gun-rights rally after being recognized by undercover Black Lives Matter activists. Watch below.

Colbert Makes Conronavirus Quarantine Feel Like a Vacation (Video)

We’re in week three of this pandemic shut down now and we’re all getting a little bored — especially those of us who might have had to cancel their honeymoons or other vacations thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. But in a funny video Tuesday, Stephen Colbert figured out how to turn quarantine lemons into vacation lemonade by, basically, lying to yourself.

The fake commercial from Tuesday’s episode of “The Late Show” is for a fictional travel company called “Limited Travel,” that promises to help people take the vacation “you didn’t dream about.”

Examples include, “a getaway to your own guest bedroom,” where we’re told we’ll enjoy “four incredible nights in a room where your mother-in-law has sporadically slept.”

Next up, a trip to “your exotic basement,” which is “full of rustic charm, like a concrete floor, some pumps, and exposed asbestos insulation.”

Next, the cells people who wanted a beach vacation to “put your feet in the sand at Cat Turd Beach,” AKA a litter box. And for those hoping to get some golf in, there’s always a game played at Low Pile Links, where you can get in “a round of rebound golf, and then relax at the 19th hole,” which turns out to be a living room couch.

Visitors to their own houses can “get to know the colorful locals,” in this case a young girl complaining that she’s bored.

Watch the clip, and enjoy “your home away from home, inside your home,” below:
